This drill is great for building habits in transition offense. It encourages speed and precision. The 5 and 4's in your program need to be able to keep up in this drill for your team to run consistently.
To start the drill, four players line up circling in the lane.
Coach takes a shot, and 4 rebounds the basketball.
The "2/3" shaded areas are where the wing players should run.
The "4" shaded area is where the post man should run.
4 takes the ball out-of-bounds and passes to 1 running up the floor.
On the shot, 1 runs to the sideline and then turns and pivots toward the ball. 1 then makes a cut up the floor looking to catch the ball in stride.
2 and 3 both run wide on the sideline and then curve toward the basket looking for a lay-up. In this frame, 1 passes to 2.
There should be no dribbling in the drill. Passes only.
After passing the ball to 1, 4 runs the length of the floor and tries to get the ball out of the net before it hits the ground.
1 again runs to the sideline then cuts up the floor.
2 and 3 run wide for a lay-up.
The goal is to complete as many lay-ups as possible in 25 seconds.
